Something Stinks, "Oh It's a Counter Offer"

A quick search for “counter-offer” on any search engine will yield a

bucket of articles and information about the pitfalls of accepting

a counter-offer. And do I really have to mention the well known

statistic that for every person who accepts a counter-offer, they will

change jobs within 6 months anyway?

But who cares about stats? They are wrong 50% of the time anyway, right?

Today I am going to set the record straight once and for all. I am…

Context Is Always Decisive

Context Is Always Decisive

Lets face it, we have all been in that "space" of thinking or feeling "I really don't want to do this", or "This is impossible and it will never work out". I am sure you have been there, right? I know I have been there more times than…

Why Social Recruiting needs to fail

I was going through some old folders on my laptop the other day and I happened to come across my very first digital recruitment media plan which I wrote for a client way back in 1999. Even though a lot has

happened in the last 11 years I still remember this particular project

fondly. This might seem quite strange when I tell you that it was an

abject failure from both mine and the client's point of view!

The client needed to recruit four permanent software engineers and…

Developing And Nurturing Candidate Relationships

Most recruiters can agree that there are two types of recruitment- passive and active. Passive recruitment tends to lend itself to more candidate involvement. The majority of your time is spent building that relationship with the candidate & earning their trust while all along suggesting and offering opportunities for them to consider. It's not uncommon for the passive candidate to stay in your pipeline for several months because they are only looking to make a career change for the…

Green Jobs to Save the World! (or at least the economy?)

Last months’s State of the Union address included a myriad of partisan and bi-partisan talking points - with cheers from one side and stoic faces from the other. But through and through, nothing was as pertinent to both sides of the general public, and coincidently the HR community, as the budgetary blueprint for 2011, or more specifically, the $100 billion designed to create more jobs. Specifically cited in the big budget was the focus on and education of green…

Awkward, My Interviewer Facebook Friended Me

I’ve been watching the massive growth of Facebook just like everyone else. From a small idea in a Harvard dorm room to over 400 million global users, Facebook is huge. As a Facebook user for the past several years, I’ve successfully dealt with some interesting friend requests. First, people from high school that I used to be friends with but by graduation we were no longer speaking. Accepted, we’re all adults now. Then, my ex-girlfriends asked to be my friend. Declined, too hard to explain to… Continue

Unofficial SXSW Tweetup

By nature it seems that the HR and Recruiting community is very social. We like to have a good time and sometimes we like to take those online connections offline at events, unconferences, or tweetups (twitter meetups). It's nice to have a beer with a social media someone who in many ways you know better than your sister or co-workers through their tweets, facebook, and blog. Even if you can't… Continue

Phony Social Networking IDs for Recruiters - fair play?

Obvious phony identities are encountered from time to time on linkedin, facebook, and twitter as well as several other locations where recruiters see potential to find candidates. Whether the name is John Doe, William Peters, Jane Foster, or something with some originality, recruiters set up fake identities for a number of reasons. Maybe they are running a secondary business that they do not want their employers to know about. Maybe they don't want ex-employers to know they are breaking their… Continue

What differentiates your recruiting model?

I attended an HR Conference in Fort Worth, Texas at the tail end of 2009 and had the opportunity to meet with dozens of exhibitors and attendees who work in the HR space. Par for the course; the event coordinators placed all of the staffing and recruiting exhibitors in the same row, which enabled me to listen to the presentations/elevator pitches of a…

"Why should we not hire you?"

This is a recent question I am seeing asked of my candidates. I see multiple ways of answering this and this appears to be a new twist on "What are your weaknesses?". What are your thoughts on the best response to this?
